    So there’s some sexy-times beetles, and some cutesy romantic hide-n-go-seek beetles. :D
    Either way, flowers seem like the best place for it!

    Very stylish sexy-times. Also, the orange, brown and black work nicely together in the second.

    Thanks! rq, that’s a good observation :D. I only noticed the hiding beetle in the computer, and even then it was not immediate.

    For the record, those are flower chafers on a strawflower in the first and Heliotaurus ruficollis on a california poppy in the second.
